Autumn Fun To Do's

The word love craved into fall leaves.
Autumn! crisp breeze in the air, breathtaking changing leaves, layered outfits, and recipe in which pumpkin or apples are the ingredient. I easily get wrapped up in the leaves changing and the scenery. Resisting the temptation to jump into a pile of leaves.

Ever year I have a "Have-T-Do" list to stay active and challenged. Maybe a few of these will encourage you to stay in step with Fall. Don't let Fall past you by without trying something.

MondayMakeover - Bridal Shower Invite

Miscommunication always goes wrong.

Re-Design a Bridal Shower invitation.
Client: Name changed for privacy, we will call our client Alyssa James.
Challenge: 24 hrs. to come up a Bridal Shower invite, E-blast and Thank You card.

As a designer, it is important to LISTEN to what the client is asking for. Don’t assume anything, ask for clarity if you have to. So I got a call from a friend of mine, if I could help a friend of hers, who was upset over her Bridal Shower invitations. When I saw the invitation, I understood why.

TGIM - Hello September

Happy Labor Day

And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, And establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands.  ~ Psalm 90:17

Happy Labor Day
Thank you to all who labor so hard to keep the economy going. May God's favor rest on us all. 
SEPTEMBER!
Looking forward to the cool days of September that will usher in Fall.
I will be doing most of what's on this list.
 Though many summer activities are ending, there is no reason not have a little fun in the Fall.
Fall color palette
When Autumn rolls around, it's time for a little decor change. Fall is an artist/designers dream for providing us with a beautiful color palette.
